BLACK 47


Road To Ruin Lyrics

The strobe was pulsin' in the after-hours, the booze was flowin' free
When I first saw you across that room on down by Houston Street
You were wrapped around a wiseguy for all the world to see
Ah, you touched my heart across that room
Then you came on home with me

The angels knew their business, boys, they knew what they were doin'
With your blazin' eyes and your raven hair on down the road to ruin
I gave up friends and family, I gave up all I knew
I followed you like Jesus Christ on down the road to ruin

The dawn threw up across the sky, we kissed like boy and girl
But neither of us was innocent, we'd both been screwed by the world
We clung onto each other for fear we'd drift away
Ah, you touched me to my heart's desire on the dawning of that day

The angels knew their business, boys, they knew what they were doin'
With your blazin' eyes and your raven hair on down the road to ruin
I gave up friends and family, I gave up all I knew
I followed you like Jesus Christ on down the road to ruin

"Johnny", you said, "I'm clean outta me head
I can't take any more pain
If life's for livin' then what are we doin'
Ploughin' these poisoned streets again and again"

Jenny, I didn't know what I had in you
How could I be so dumb to walk out on you?
Now what am I doin', ploughin' these poisoned streets again and again
And again and again and again and again and again

I wonder where you are tonight, I hope you're feelin' fine
In some saloon or after-hours, the men around you like flies
I keep on searchin' everywhere, I know just what I'm doin'
Ah, you're somewhere out there right in front of me on down the road to ruin

The angels knew their business, boys, they knew what they were doin'
With your blazin' eyes and your raven hair on down the road to ruin
I gave up friends and family, I gave up all I knew
I followed you like Jesus Christ on down the road to ruin
I followed you, you
